Why Is the Text Formatting for My Blog Posts Messed Up? My First Post Is Fine but After That, All My Posts on My Home Page Are in Boldface (or Another Text Attribute), but I Didn’t Make Them That Way.

This happens frequently, and the culprit is almost always an HTML tag that’s not been closed. Locate the point in your posts where the formatting begins. There’s probably an HTML tag designating that formatting to begin in that position but the closing HTML tag was not included.
 
Open the post where the problem begins and insert the closing HTML tag in the proper position. Save your changes and refresh your blog’s live home page. (You might have to clear your cache, too.) The text in your posts should be corrected now.
